Scotty Brennen: See that girl over there in the red? Say “hi” to her and she’s yours. She’ll have her legs around you so tight you’ll be begging for mercy.
Josh: Well, I’ll stay away from her, then.
This is a fun comedy about a kid who becomes a man in under a day.
Tom Hanks is a fantastic comedic actor who continues to charm his way through movies. Big is no exception. It has a great cast and alot of fun along the way.
The film is directed by Penny Marshall and the score was composed by Howard Shore who has been made famous by the very popular The Lord of the Rings Trilogy as well as The Hobbit Trilogy.
The plot of the film is…After a wish turns 12-year-old Josh Baskin (David Moscow) into a 30-year-old man (Tom Hanks), he heads to New York City and gets a low-level job at MacMillen Toy Company. A chance encounter with the owner (Robert Loggia) of the company leads to a promotion testing new toys. Soon a fellow employee, Susan Lawrence (Elizabeth Perkins), takes a romantic interest in Josh. However, the pressure of living as an adult begins to overwhelm him, and he longs to return to his simple, former life as a boy.
